Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition has served you well, but the assorted parts that make up the air suspension system are faulty and can be expensive to repair at the dealership. Usually, each part needs to work together in sync, or else the entire suspension malfunctions. We created a kit that can help you get rid of this dependency on the faulty original air suspension system for good. Our air to non-air suspension conversion kit for the Ford Expedition includes two front coilover shocks, two rear Eibach springs, and two rear shocks. DIYers love the kit because it saves them time- the kit is installed in about one hour per wheel. The kit saves frustration- never deal with a failed air suspension system again. But it also saves a lot of money- in fact, most of our customers tell us they chose the conversion kit because of the low price when choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. Scroll up to look at our price comparison of three different scenarios: that of repairing the air suspension system with Original Equipment at the dealer; that of installing aftermarket air suspension replacement parts on the Expedition piece-by-piece;
and that of eliminating the air suspension headache for good and installing a brand new Strutmasters suspension conversion today. Your wallet will thank you!
How Do I know If My Expedition Air Suspension is failing?
There are a few signs you need to look for when attempting to diagnose if your air suspension is leaking or failing on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD. The most noticeable sign is a sudden loss of three to five inches in ride height in the rear of the vehicle. You may experience uneven height difference between different sides of the Expedition. Because steel torsion bars support the front of the vehicle, it is more difficult to notice when the front air shocks fail. Poor ride quality is the most common symptom of failed front air shocks. The rear will be sagging while the front remains up. An illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument cluster also indicates suspension total failure. If the air compressor has stopped working or is running too long (longer than 15-20 seconds maximum), a leak in the system is the most likely culprit. A visual inspection of the rear air springs will normally reveal cracks caused by dry rot and normal wear and tear.

Suspension Components List
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that uses pressurized air as a cushion (instead of a metal coil spring) to support the weight of the rear of the vehicle. These rubber air springs are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. Since all air springs all go bad at about the same rate, if one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Front Air Shocks (x2)- Air shocks dampen vibration and reduce bounciness in the front of the vehicle. The contain a rubber bladder that fills with air sent by the compressor.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Rear Gas Shocks (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that works independently of the air springs to dampen vibration and bounciness.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Air Lines- tubes that carry pressurized air from the vehicle's onboard compressor to the air shocks and air springs in order to adjust the height of the vehicle.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Solenoids (x4)- This vehicle is equipped with 4 solenoids. These plastic components work along with the suspension control module. The solenoids are responsible for regulating the air pressure in each air spring or air shock. Solenoids are a small piece of the suspension system but they play a big role in how well it functions. If a solenoid is not working properly, it will cause the vehicle's ride height to be unlevel.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Compressor- This vehicle is equipped an onboard air suspension compressor, responsible for pumping up the air springs and shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor is forced to run continuously to try and keep the air springs inflated. After a couple of days of running non-stop, the compressor will burn itself out. Replacing the compressor is a timely and expensive project to undertake.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Dryer Assembly- This vehicle is equipped with a dryer assembly. The dryer assembly is responsible for getting moisture out of the air lines. Once the air suspension parts start to leak, moisture will build up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension components from the inside out. The dryer must be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced to prevent further damage.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Suspension Control Module- This vehicle is equipped with a suspension control module. This module is the brain of the suspension system and it reads all of the signals that are being sent by the height sensors and determines if the vehicle needs to be raised or lowered.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.

Real Customers, Real Reviews
Read reviews from people just like you looking for the perfect solution for their suspension needs.
The staff on the phone were knowledgeable and helpful. The product arrived promptly.
The instructions were good and the product does far better than the Monroe kit that it replaced.
I would recommend this product and company.
I appreciate the experience I had with you company. Will was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions upon ordering. The exact parts I needed arrived ahead of schedule. The parts were installed on the truck today. It rides well and handles well. It is slightly elevated in the back and is about 2″ higher at the driver’s side running board. That will take some getting used to. Perhaps it will relax a bit with use, too. I am very pleased with buying experience through Strutmasters. I will be referring you to any friends who have a need for your products. I was able to do the replacement for 40% of what a Ford dealer quoted for the same work. I appreciate the savings and the professional service.
Merry Christmas to everyone there.
I checked the website and was still unclear about which product matched what I needed. I called your toll-free number. Will answered. Within minutes, he had answered all of my questions with confidence and had processed my order. I also appreciated the offer of free shipping. That was a very nice touch. I found Will to be personable and professional. I was completely comfortable talking to him and confident that he knew what he was talking about. I expect that the product I ordered will be right for my truck and that it will solve the air ride problems permanently. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
I purchased the kit and with the help of a buddy we were able to jack and secure the vehicle; remove all the old necessary items; install the shocks and springs on the rear in about 2.5 hours. The only “problem” we encountered was on the left rear (drivers side) upper shock bolt was a bit difficult to access for removal and re-installation, which added an additional 30 minutes time total to the total job. Over all it was not too bad to do yourself. It took another 45 minutes for the 2 front shocks, including jacking and securing and removing and installation of the two new (standard shocks). Over all it was not that bad to do.
“1/19/2010- I just installed this kit in my suv. The ride is much better and I don’t hear the pump runing any more. There is no bounce from sagging air shocks and the ride height it back to original. This was not an easy job but most garage guys should be able to handle it. A spring compressor for the rear is a must and for the front it better to drop the lower control arm. Mine is a 97 and from the north east. I purchased the front & Rear
conversion kit only. I should have purchased the full kit with the ball joints and controll arms. The salt has eaten it all up. I do suggest a BIG can of luquid wrench to spray all bolts prior to doing the job. I am very happy with the sales people and this product.”
Other than that, your staff was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and your service was great, Thanks for all you did with this order. Randy
Uneventful. Arrived on time. Two Hours to install. Expedition looks and rides good.
